For the Mixed Berry Filling

  1. Combine berries, sugar, flour, lemon zest and lemon juice in a large bowl. Toss gently and set aside. If using frozen berries put mixture in freezer to keep berries frozen

  6. Transfer rolled dough to refrigerator
  7. Continue to roll each piece of dough and place in refrigerator immediately after rolling
  8. Assemble tarts one at a time. Place rolled dough, one at a time on parchment lined baking sheet and spoon ½ cup of fruit mixture onto the circle, leaving a 1-1.5 inch border around the edges.
  9. Using your hands, bring the dough’s edges over the top to envelope the fruit mixture, folding in the edges and patching up any holes
  10. Repeat with remaining dough and berries
  11. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and the fruit is bubbling.
